    Brazilian Soccer Mascot Flips Out, Spikes Head on the Ground (Video)

    Mascots are not supposed to get wrapped up in the game. In fact, they exist for the exact opposite reason. They’re supposed to help keep things light and airy, making buffoons of themselves and entertaining little kids. (Or, on occasion, tackling them.)

    So it turns out there are at least two different costumes for Orbit, the Houston Astros mascot. There’s the costume for regular Orbit, a bi-ped baseball-loving alien. Then there’s an Orbit-riding-an-ostrich costume, in which the guy in the suit puts his legs in the ostrich legs while Orbit’s legs dangle off the ostrich’s shoulders. Why […]

    As the official “team ambassador” of the Toronto Raptors, you might expect Drake to have a little bit of animosity (or, at the very least, professional rivalry) with the Raptors mascot.

    In case you didn’t know, Texas A&M is one of six officially designated Senior Military Colleges in the United States. That means they offer an extensive ROTC program, and about 2,200 students belong to a Corps of Cadets, meaning they live a military lifestyle subject to military-style discipline. The official purpose of the Corps of […]

    Sports mascots are often gifted with extraordinary “abilities” that we humans can only dream of.  But usually those same “abilities” are also pretty useless, like doing the Macarena during the 7th inning stretch, or getting into fights with Barney the Purple Dinosaur. However, at a recent spring training game between the Minnesota Twins and the […]
